Pope in the UK: Atheists Like Nazis
"Even in our own lifetimes, we can recall how Britain and her leaders stood against a Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society and denied our common humanity to many, especially the Jews, who were thought unfit to live," he said. "As we reflect on the sobering lessons of atheist extremism of the 20th century, let us never forget how the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life leads ultimately to a truncated vision of man and of society and thus a reductive vision of a person and his destiny," the Pontiff added.
The British Humanist Association was quick to respond to the Pope's remarks, noting in a statement: “The notion that it was the atheism of Nazis that led to their extremist and hateful views or that it somehow fuels intolerance in Britain today is a terrible libel against those who do not believe in God.
“The notion that it is nonreligious people in the U.K. today who want to force their views on others, coming from a man whose organization exerts itself internationally to impose its narrow and exclusive form of morality and undermine the human rights of women, children, gay people, and many others, is surreal.”
Z: How many of you think the Pope is right? Before I go on, I'd like to say I know there are atheists who believe as they do and don't have any intention of slamming the faithful for their beliefs in God, like Conservative S.E. Cupp, for example, to only name one of many. HUMANISTS can't seem to grasp the goodness and value of God in society.... What are your thoughts? Man over God doesn't seem to be working for us........

"You will be protected from the lash of the tongue, and need not fear when destruction comes." Job 5:21
Have a good Sunday........stand up for your faith, remember how much better off our children and our country were before secularism rose to such new heights. Let me add that I hope our Jewish pals here had a very meaningful Yom Kippur.
